I know it's not your typical New York 'slice', but it's that combination of thin crust and the wood-burning stove, that gives it that smoky flavour. Best god-damn pizza in NYC, hands down!
Not a lot of seating available (3 tables? and 1 waist-high bench to sit at), so if you're coming around lunch-time, be prepared to possibly have to take it with you. But in the summertime, Madison Square Park is a short walk away anyway, where you can sit down and unbox your delicious thin-crust delight.

Stop by and order a pizza- it is a thin crust style and the toppings tonight were arugula, goat cheese and tomato sauce. The salads are ceaser and an arugula, peppers and fresh mozzarella one. Yummy, healthy and great friendly service. Price is VERY reasonable. Beers on tap. Great list of signature pies. Also on menu wood roasted penne. It is open daily 11am to 11 pm and sunday until 10 pm. You will love this place

I decided to try Waldy's because of its high rating. I was very disappointed. I usually eat at Pizza Suprema which in my opinion is the best. I would recommend not eating here, and walking a few blocks to Pizza Suprema.

We ordered two small pizzas and the crust was very thin and crispy - so nice. The service was good and we did not have to wait long to get our order. Absolutely worth a visit.

Really nice small spot. The thin crust rustic pizzas were excellent with varying interesting topping options. Service was very good, quick and reasonably priced.
